Even from a “bad movie” perspective, Behemoth still sucks. The actors are so fucking bored, they don’t even bother to ham it up; the creature has nothing to do with any incarnation of the biblical beastie, so don’t hold your breath there; and the story and special defects are trite at best (the project was shot so very rarely do the real actors have to be seen with the fake critter — which should tell you something). Worst of all, the filmmakers missed a golden opportunity to insert a song by the Polish metal band Behemoth.
Vivendi Entertainment’s DVD release of Behemoth (part of its illustrious “Maneater Series”) is about as exciting as the movie itself: a barebones disc with a barely-animated menu that only gives you the option of either playing the beast of selecting a scene. The movie is presented in a 1.77:1 aspect ratio (as it was aired) with a 5.1 Dolby Digital soundtrack. Overall, the A/V aspects of this throwaway creature feature are superb for a Standard-Definition home video release of a made-for-Cable-TV monster movie: the image is pretty crisp and clear, while the sound is pretty decent. No subtitles or alternate audio options are present, while the lack of any special features whatsoever (aside from a trailer at the startup of the disc) makes this title all the more forgettable.
The bottom line: Behemoth isn’t even good for a drunken bad movie night with your friends. Skip it.
